Not wet at all!

Truthfully, WOTS this year did NOT seem auspicious. We woke to torrential downpours, bucketing rain slashing against our breakfast windows. Undaunted, we drove to the site, and passed the barrier just in the nick of time (the Witchmobile protesting all the while at the indecently inclement weather). We assessed the sopping wet table, dropped off our baggage, and parked the car underground, where it could recuperate for the duration of WOTS.

We strategized: yes, our friends at Starbucks wouldn't mind if we nicked a handful (or two) of napkins to dry our table, would they?

Indeed, they did not!

But lo! When the elevator door opened to Bloor Street West, Mr. Golden Sun had vanquished those horrible rain clouds! It was a miracle, of sorts! The day ended up being warm, lovely sunshiney, and full of wonderful, wonderful people.

Some of those people helped us in the Little Witch Press booth! Some of those lovely people stopped by the booth to say hi! Some of them (many of them) bought some books and helped us celebrate our second printing of Where Do Witches Go?

All in all, it was a stupendous day. Photos soon!

ETA: photo now! With our lovely daughters, Absy and Genny. ALSO: photo by @elsienisonen, who is not only a supporter, but a wonderful photographer (even with my iPhone!)
